The Garter Hug is an easy and relaxing stole to knit. It is worked from side to side in a chevron pattern. There are no purls involved. The rounded shape is achieved by using short rows.

The pattern is written. It includes a schematic to show the shape, a photo tutorial to show the short row technique used and a tick chart for optional use.
